Mathematics Elective
The student must take one additional mathematics course at the 300 or 400 level (excluding K 300).
These requirements are a minimum; those students who are planning graduate study in mathematics are strongly encouraged to take both of the sequences M 403M 404 and M 413M 414. In addition, it is strongly recommended that the candidate take electives in areas related to mathematics. Depending on interests and goals, the candidate may choose these from other mathematics offerings; from computer science offerings such as C 251; from physics offerings such as P 221P 222; from chemistry offerings such as C 105C 106; or from various education courses leading to certification.
